Rome, June 10th, 2020 – The Board of Directors of Enel S.p.A. (“Enel” or the “Company”), meeting today under the chairmanship of Michele Crisostomo, has authorized the issue by Enel, by December 31st, 2021, of one or more hybrid non-convertible subordinated bonds, in the maximum amount equal to the value of 1.5 billion euros, to be placed exclusively with EU and non-EU institutional investors, including through private placements.
